Hi Sean,

thank you for your quick reply. I was already hoping to get such feedback.

I had read the CSR and I had already thought that you guys didn’t revert the complete change.
My problem is that I can’t see what exactly you have done.
I’m concerned about making it insecure by creating a mixture of old and new behavior. How can I ensure to get the same behavior as 11.0.12-oracle?
Would it be possible to publish your security file and PKCS12KeyStore.java?
Otherwise, wouldn’t it be safer to stick with the old behavior until we switch to the new one in a future release?

Best regards,
Martin

Martin,

you seem to be suggesting a full revert of the JDK-8153005 changes. Note
that the Oracle JDK changes only relate to to the default PKCS12
macAlgorithm and macIterationCount (back to HmacPBESHA1 and 100000
respectively). While there are other interoperability concerns with the
keystore.pkcs12.certProtectionAlgorithm and
keystore.pkcs12.keyProtectionAlgorithm values [1], they relate to JDK
8u/7u where PKCS12 is not the default keystore type.

regards,
Sean.
